If you take a look at this website during legislative hours in Britain, you will see a bustling set of eight small screens with activity in the Northern Ireland Assembly, the Scottish Parliament, the House of Commons, and so on. This is the BBC's "Democracy Live" website and it features gavel-to-gavel coverage of these proceedings. Visitors can use the "Featured business" link to watch some of the most current coverage, or take a look through the "Watch again" features to look over materials titled "School spending 'will increase'" and "PM confirms defence spending cuts". Further along, the site also contains a listing of all previous hearings, links to topical blogs, some historic moments in Parliament's history, and the ability to follow a representative's appearances on the BBC.
